Scripps-Howard Heisman poll

Posted on: December 9, 2009 5:39 pm

Another major Heisman indicator. Mark Ingram is the winner of the final Scripps-Howard News Service Heisman poll, by a point over Ndamukong Suh. Yours truly voted in this poll all season.

This is shaping up to be the closest Heisman vote in history. Scripps-Howard is a further indicator with Ingram getting 33 points to Suh's 32. Third-place Toby Gerhart actually had the most first-place votes, four. There were 10 voters nationwide. Here is the breakdown:

1. Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama, 33 points (two first-place votes).

2. Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska, 32 (2).

3. Toby Gerhart, RB, Stanford, 29 (4).

4. Colt McCoy, QB, Texas, 16 (1).

5 (tie). Tim Tebow, QB, Florida, 7 (1); C.J. Spiller, RB, Clemson, 7.

Others receiving votes: Houston QB Case Keenum 5, TCU DE Jerry Hughes, 1.

Scripps-Howard Heisman poll

I'm still very confused as to why Tim Tebow gets a first place vote for the Heisman. I will have no problem if any of Ingram, Suh, or Gerhart win the trophy this year but if Tebow or McCoy take home the trophy I will be very disappointed. No matter what happens there will be a lot of people upset from all over the country.
